Ah sweet memories Ouch that seems a long time ago..... I was told the Galle Face Green was actually green until the pope showed up and a massive crowd destroyed the grass. After that it became the Galle Face Brown. The green is slowly trying to make a comeback, though. I actually visited someone...

Re: The Vancouver Lookout Tower at Harbour Centre

DrFumblefinger ·
As many times as I've visited Vancouver, I've never been to the top of this tower. Will have to make a point of doing so when I'm next there on a clear day. Vancouver is perhaps the most beautiful city in the world (I know, many places are), but the setting is absolutely magnificent. Sadly, it's been overpopulated and is now one of the most expensive cities in North America. But it still is lovely, as your blog so clearly shows. Thanks, Samantha!

Re: The Vancouver Lookout Tower at Harbour Centre

TravelingCanuck ·
So glad that you and Gene had a good time. Vancouver is a beautiful city but as the good Doctor mentioned it has become overpopulated and expensive. Looks like you had some very nice weather though. Dining in the tower is a great way to enjoy the view. The last time I did that was in the early 80s. Happy belated Anniversary as well.
